Client: Secret 7/Laura Marling
This year I’ve taken part in Secret 7 (http://www.secret-7.com/). The sale of the vinyls was a huge success with the majority selling out in an hour and half – crazy! It also now means I can show the final artwork.
I decided to do my cover for Laura Marling’s ‘The Beast’ which is beautiful poem of sorts. I know the usual type and style associated with Marling and wanted to do the opposite – try and break what people would expect. And so I tried a bit of a lo-poly illustration style which is bright and colourful. It’s meant to resemble some sort of tribal mask.
You can see my original sketch below along with the final.
